My niece is a skilled leather craftsman and I took these pictures of my collection for a binder I gave her for Christmas. It had a 1920's leather manual w/patterns I bought from ebay. But these are the pictures that she likes to refer to for ideas on joins and cut.
I use the black bag and #2 pic two-tone the most. Also favorites of mine are the colorful clutch lower left #1 pic and the cowhide black & white small clutch on step 3. Since this picture I've added a few more Arts & Crafts era tooled purses too.
I have them all displayed above my book shelf so can enjoy them everyday....and yes, they need to be dusted off now that I think about it.
